Always Put Yourself in Your Sponsors' Shoes

Persuading a potential sponsor takes a lot more skills than pitching your past events and giving sponsors a check list or templates of what you are looking for. It takes a set of relationship building skills.

It is about "what is in it for the sponsors". Do your research prior to approaching any potential sponsors. This task can't be done last minute in ad-hoc situation, otherwise people will see the lack of leadership in what you or your organisation are trying to do. 

  1. Create a list of potential sponsors and narrow it down carefully
  2. Build relationships over the years
  3. Provide evidence of how successful your events were
    (i.e. powerful statistics, testimonials from previous sponsors)
  4. Discuss the event marketing strategy with your sponsors
  5. Follow up after the event and pay attention to their business goals
  6. Not everything is about your event. Help your sponsors gain substantial leads long after the events
